    5. Problem Compared to past generations, contemporary children have changed: Yes No Please justify your response

    6. Fact Children are increasingly selfish and disrespectful. Children are continually exhibiting limited moral and ethical skills.

    14. Quality classroom Teacher understands that: For these are all our children. We will all profit by or pay for whatever they become James Baldwin

    15. Quality Classroom I have come to a frightening conclusion. I am the decisive element in the classroom. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher, I posses tremendous power to make a childs life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or deescalated, and the child humanized or dehumanized. -Hiam Ginnott, 1977

    16. Quality Classroom (Glasser, 1993) Warm and supportive Quality work is expected Learners always asked to do their best Learners evaluate their work & improve on it Learners feel good about quality work Destructive behaviors are discouraged- focus is on quality Get off to a good start- plan ahead (procedures, routines/rules & consequences)
